Shortly after graduating from the University of Tampa with a degree in education, I was pursuing a career in coaching when on February of 1972, I was dramatically saved while reading a Billy Graham tract. Three months later I was baptized with the Holy Spirit while attending a morning bible study at Bayshore United Methodist Church in Tampa, Florida. During this powerful encounter with the Lord, I told Him "I would go wherever He wanted me to go and do whatever He wanted me to do".
I then began my formal ministry training at Asbury Theological Seminary in Wilmore, Kentucky where I received a Master of Divinity degree in May of 1979.
I have held various staff positions on church ministry teams, pioneered and served as Senior Pastor to two churches, and served as Senior Pastor of New Covenant Church in Thomasville, GA from February 2002 until June 1, 2010, stepping down as Senior Pastor in order to return to the traveling ministry. I believe these experiences allow me to be sensitive to the needs of the local church and the Senior Pastor.
I have conducted hundreds of Renewal Meetings in the United States and Europe that are characterized by salvations, re-dedications, healings and other powerful manifestations of God's Glory.
